HERSHEY, PA — Hershey Bears defenseman Vincent Iorio is a good guy and a rule follower. On the ice as a rookie, Iorio committed the fewest amount of penalties on the Bears, 6 PIMs, amongst players who suited up in 42 or more games during the regular season (63). Off-the-ice, Iorio has an infectious personality and is seemingly always smiling. He’s the first guy to hold open a door or bring coffee for a friend.
But the defenseman recently got the attention of the AHL, like the league as a whole, after one of his superstitions got a wee bit too stitious.
